X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw could snub a glamorous location for Judges' Houses in favour of Manchester.

Speaking to Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom on tomorrow's Xtra Factor, Nick insists he will be taking his contestants to Oldham.

"My mum's going to be ironing in the background and auntie Carmel as my guest judge. She makes sick cheese and onion pies," he told the hosts.

Will Nick really snub the usually glamorous locations and go back to his roots up North? Although he did say it with a straight face!

It was reported earlier this week that bosses have cancelled plans to film the Judges' Houses section of the show live from four different locations around the world.

It had been believed that viewers would watch the acts perform live in front of the judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Rita Ora and Nick. But, according to reports, those plans have been changed because logistically, filming in different timezones would be difficult.

Catch The Xtra Factor on Saturday 19 September at 9.30pm on ITV2.
